IS THERE A HARD LIMIT ON HUMAN LONGEVITY at about 115 years? I should note that this article only addresses extensions in lifespan based on nutrition and traditional medical care, not on new technologies for DNA repair, etc., which would make such a “hard” limit much softer. But even a decade or two extension in […]
